Date of Program: Now through March 15, 2014
2014 marks The Pearl Street
Branch Library’s 100th Anniversary!
In commemoration of this exciting event, the Pearl Street Library
Centennial Anniversary Committee is creating a Time Capsule that will be buried
at the Pearl Street Library.
The Committee is looking for
suggestions from the community for small scale items that reflect the 21st
century, such as smart phones, thumb/flash drives, DVDs, etc. Please email your suggestions to PearlStreetLibrary100@gmail.com by March 15, 2014.
After the suggestions are collected,
residents will have a chance to vote on what they would like to see placed in
the capsule. Ballot boxes will be
located at the Enfield Public Library and Pearl Street Branch Library.
If time capsules aren’t your
thing but you still want to help celebrate Pearl Street’s anniversary, don’t
worry - the Centennial Anniversary Committee have planned numerous events for
the exciting year ahead, among them: a birthday party, a town-wide scavenger
hunt with a 100 year theme, a marble tournament, a visit from Kandie Karle-the Edwardian
Lady, “meet Andrew Carnegie”-with Richard Clark, an outdoor movie, special
displays, and much more! Be on the
lookout for event listings via email, press, library signage, and our library
